Bankrupt THQ Has More Games to Sell

'Darksiders,' 'Homeworld,' 'Red Faction,' Licenses to 'Marvel Super Hero Squad,' 'Jeopardy,' 'Wheel of Fortune' up for Grabs by Mid-May

Bankrupt THQ is still looking to unload some high-profile video game properties as the publisher seeks new coin to pay back creditors.

The titles include: “Darksiders,” “Homeworld,” “MX vs. ATV,” “Red Faction,” “Big Beach Sports,” “Destroy All Humans!,” “Summoner,” and licensed software, including “Marvel Super Hero Squad,” “Supreme Commander” and “Worms,” most of which had produced sequels.

THQ also had produced licensed games based on “Jeopardy,” “Wheel of Fortune,” “The Biggest Loser,” “Nancy Drew,” and the films “Rio” and “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” which are now also up for grabs by other publishers.

The sale of the assets will be conducted via a court-supervised sale process, the Agoura Hills, Calif.-based company said. It hopes top complete the bidding and sale process for those assets by mid May. Initial bids must be submitted by April 1, with final bids due April 15.

THQ already had sold most of the top titles in its library, as well as development studios, to buyers last month, after declaring Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Liquidation included Turtle Rock Studios’ “Evolve;” “Saint’s Row,” “Homefront 2,” “Metro: Last Light” and “South Park: The Stick of Truth,” generating around $72 million through the auction.

THQ and its domestic business units filed voluntary petitions under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware on Dec. 19, 2012.
